Story
Hello, there! I'm Mark, a charming 3-year-old German Shepherd mix with a striking black and white fur coat. My story began when I was just a pup of about four months old. Hungry and seeking kindness, I wandered into a guest house on the beautiful Jeju Island in Korea. Fortunately, compassionate souls took me in, providing me with food and care. Despite my lovable and well-behaved personality, I haven't yet found that forever family I long for, even at three years old. I simply adore people. Approaching them and sharing affection is something I absolutely cherish—I'll rub my body against them and gladly accept cuddles from both familiar faces and those I've just met. Car rides are a breeze for me, and I'm more than ready for a delightful walk with a leash. When it comes to other dogs, I approach them with a friendly greeting, though I prefer to build a rapport before engaging in play. Meeting a cat during a walk piques my curiosity, but I always follow my human's lead when it comes to the leash. My journey thus far has had its challenges, but I'm now eager to find my forever family, share affection, and live a joy-filled life. Are you the one I've been waiting for? Let's rub hearts and make beautiful memories together! 🐾❤️ For more videos: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIsLTtIpe3JxqRJ_5tCSi_Q-uLafHZJko&si=IP7YOIoFLA3ScLu2

Story
Luna Bear is a perfect girl! She is the ultimate loyal companion and will follow you to the ends of the earth! She loves other dogs, rarely gets on furniture, and still has to be convinced that its ok to get on her foster mom's bed. She is less of a cuddler and more of the kind of dog that will protect you and have your back. She likes to be on watch and make sure everything is going well in her home. While she loves to lounge around on the floor, she does like to be your shadow if you leave the room. Luna Bear is extremely motherly with the human toddler in her foster home and needs to know where she is at all times, it's just the cutest thing! She understands that in the house her family stays calm and collected but when she is out into the yard, she is ready for playtime. She will need her family to be extra watchful at first when she is in the yard, as she takes a little time to decide that she's home and she might try to escape! Once she knows she's home and loved, she will never leave your side. She is completely potty trained and has amazing house manners, so her foster mom never has to crate her when she leaves the home. Shes been great with the resident cats, but outdoor cats/other furry critters seem fun to chase! She has a curious nature about her which is fun to watch! She really hopes to find a family or someone that would be as dedicated to her as she will be to them.

Story
In September of 2018, Grizzly was born in my home. I had fostered his mother who gave birth to a litter of 8 puppies. Grizzly was born fifth and came out much larger than his littermates, looking like a grizzly bear compared to them, hence, the name, and it stuck. He is mild mannered and loves to be with his people, which makes this a sad decision for me, but he will do better with a family or person that can be with him more, spend more time engaged with him (perhaps walks), and in a home that doesn't have so much activity going on in and around it, as he can be a bit anxious.

Story
Draco is a smart, loving guy who loves cuddles, pets, treats, and playing. He can be very timid at first but with some patience, he warms up to all and shows his goofy side. This pretty boy can be anxious around new dogs and will react/bark at them, with proper introductions he has gotten along with some dogs and loves to play with them, but I believe he is dog selective. Since being in our care, he has quickly picked up training and is learning to walk on a leash without pulling. He is house-trained and knows to sit, down, wait, leave it, off, and out (as in get out). At only 2 years old he has his hyper moments; he'll need someone patient as he continues to learn manners and be able to play with him to get some of his energy out. He will thrive with someone active and who can be a firm leader to him. He will make the perfect dog with daily practice, patience, and plenty of love! NEUTERED
